Barbara Wallace ~ The Billionaire's Matchmaker Guest Post

Written as four distinct, but connected stories, THE BILLIONAIRE’S MATCHMAKER, is the perfect book for the busy holiday season.  It’s fun, it’s flirty, and with four separate endings, it can be read between errands.

Driving Mr. Wrong Home by Shirley Jump: When a handsome man from Gabby’s past agrees to a cross-country road trip, her master plan to re-launch her art career quickly morphs into an unexpected, romantic reunion.
The Sheriff’s Secret by Susan Meier: Marney’s 9-1-1 emergency help arrives in the form of a rugged, blue-eyed cop. Now she has the perfect bodyguard to keep her safe during those dark, steamy nights…
Love Unleashed by Jackie Braun: The last thing Mia wants is a relationship…yet the headstrong florist can’t keep her hands off her sexy-as-sin ex-boyfriend.  Will she open her heart before he leaves town for good?
Love in the Shadows by Barbara Wallace: Jenny is a woman on a mission – she’ll even resort to dognapping to make her point! But can she teach a reclusive, emotionally-wounded tycoon that love heals all thing?


It was the 1950s.  A man named Bill wanted his friend Janice to go dancing with him.

“I can’t,” Janice said, “unless there’s a fourth to keep my friend, Judy, company.”

“No problem,” Bill replied.  A few minutes later, he introduced Janice and Judy to a fellow baseball player, a man named Don.

Don and Janice spent the next fifty years together.

Fast-forward to the early eighties.  A group of us wanted to go to the beach, so my friend Sue called her landlord, Andy, looking for suggestions.

“My friends and I are going to the beach too,” Andy – who was our age and ever on the lookout for a date - lied.  “Join us.”

Soon as he hung up, Andy proceeded to call his friends and organize a trip.  "You have to go,” he said to his friend, Pete.  “There’s a girl here who’s just your type.”

Pete and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary next summer.

The point I’m trying to make with these stories is that matchmakers can arrive in our lives at any moment, and take any form.  The guy on the bus, the co-worker down the hall, the nurse in the doctor’s office – at any moment they could become the link that helps two people fall in love.

In the Billionaire’s Matchmaker, the link is a perky Jack Russell terrier named Charlie.  In his own, semi-destructible way, he helps four friends find true love in Chandler’s Cove, Illinois.  There’s Gabby who discovers high school nerd TJ isn’t so nerdy anymore, Marney whose need for a guard dog leads to a hot affair with the local sheriff, Mia who reconnects with her old boyfriend, the local vet, and Jenny who ends up falling for Charlie’s owner.  None of these women are looking for love – and they certainly don’t expect a dog to bring them their happy ever after – but just like in real life, love finds them anyway.

How did you find your significant other?  Did you have a matchmaker?  Share your story below.  We’d love to hear.

Barbara Wallace has been a life-long romantic and daydreamer so it's not surprising she decided to become a writer at age eight. However, it wasn't until a co-worker handed her a romance novel that she knew where her stories belonged. For years she limited her dreams to nights, weekends and commuter train trips while working as a communications specialist, PR freelancer and full-time mom. At the urging of her family, she finally chucked the day job to pursue writing full time and couldn't be happier.
A life-long Yankee, Barbara lives in New England with her husband, their teenage son, and three very spoiled pets.

Places to find Barbara Wallace:


  1. Aw great post! I love hearing how people find their matches. Some crazy ways it happens. The series sound great!

  2. Thanks Anna. I love hearing how people meet too. In college, you had all the girls looking for their one. They would get totally dressed up and put on make up to got to the grocery store at 10 at night. Me... I would just put on pj's that weren't ripped. I figured if a guy thought I looked nice in flannel pj's it was all good. :)

  3. Kim - I like your attitude. I met my husband having not showered and while eating donuts on the beach. (Okay, we went to the beach after a really fun night...) Although he said it was the relaxed attitude that wone him over. And Anna - your name is the best. I herd cats on a regular basis.

    Thanks so much for having me.

    1. You're welcome Barbara. Thank you for stopping by today.
